A very enjoyable meal

Le Swan is on the main street in the Old Town of Boulogne in a very quaint setting. There's quite a choice of restaurant in the area, but we thought that this looked like our type of place. We had a very good meal with excellent wine - to be recommended.

I was in a party of 12 visiting The Boulogne Festival of the sea and it was about 13.15 when we got to the old city looking for a nice restaurant for a meal not twelve of us but in smaller groups. I have been before and on my last visit the food was not so good so we tried... More

On a day trip to Boulougne we found this lovely restaurant which serves good quality traditional fayre with a modern twist. It took us a while to decide from the menu as everything sounded delicious and we weren't disappointed - every dish was tasty and the portion sizes generous.

A friend recommended this place after visiting in winter. On a warm June evening it was good to have the choice of eating in or outside. A little breeze sent us in! An extensive menu, both fixed price and al a carte. The 15 Euro menu was very good value. Being in Bouogne most of us went for fish which... More

So much choice in this area we decided to take pot luck and struck gold. We were given a warm welcome and the 24euro set menu was good value.we opted inter alia for escargot and oysters, excellent steak, veal and monkfish and cheese or crete brûlée. Wine was very palatable and reasonably priced. All in all a lucky choice and... More

Worked out I have been coming to this restaurant (obviously not under the same patron) for about 33 years! Good value as always. The evening was let down by the taxi's triple and double charging us, and my French is still not quite good enough to argue the toss.

Popped in here for lunch while in Boulogne for the day. We had the €18.90 three-course menu, and very nice it was too. Starters were onion soup and stuffed mushrooms – both very good. Mains were steak frites and a duo of fish (salmon and cod fillet in some lovely sauce) served with chips and a little medley of vegetables.... More

The waitress seemed pleased to welcome us and service of the aperitif and first course was fast, but after that it felt as though we had been forgotten about. The food was average for France.
